New Happy Day

Is it the after Easter glow that is upon me? I'm feeling incredibly peaceful and productive in a gentle way. I do miss you, I will check up on my fellow bloggers when done with this post.

On the one hand, since I've stripped down my necessities, the only thing that I think about resuming is internet access. On the other hand (yes, Virginia, there is always another hand), I haven't used it for at least a couple weeks.

So, how much am I missing it?

Anywho. What have I been doing with my time, you ask. I'm discovering mystics such as Julian of Norwich. I visited the Episcopalian Divinity School in Boston with one of it's alumna and another interested classmate. One of the freakier things that I've ever done is walked the stations of the cross with 40 others down Route 97 in Salem, NH, carrying a 6 foot cross, following the sound truck broadcasting a priest singing hymns.

What did you do this week?

Throw Off Those Worries

Life washes on. I went to a step mtg that just started this year. We were on step 6, reading a step book that mentioned looking at the pay off to holding on to our defect. I don't know if fearfulness has ever been listed as my defect but it has certainly bothered me this winter. Self pity has definately been on my list and that has been a biggy, too. So, the payoff? Attention from others. How about if I a) act 'as if' I feel full of spirit and faith b) face the light instead of peering into the dark c) firmly bring my thoughts and my mouth back where my feet are, keeping it in the day banishes 100% of my worries What's good about today is that I can do that!

The Hermeneutical Circle

A fancy way of saying, wherever I go, there I am. Anything new with you?
